  • We eat/purchase as much of our food organically as we can. I LOVE organic milk. To me it tastes completely differently than non organic.

  • I buy a lot of organic now. It doesn't have all those antibiotics and hormones and whatever the hell else they put it non organic. I want my kids to be healthy. Yeah it's more money but my kids are worth it. I just wish I started sooner.

  • I love buying everything I can organic. There are some fruits and vegetables that are more important to buy organic than others, so sometimes I do save money by not buying the organic bananas, oranges, and onions. Other than that, most every fruit/vegetable I prefer organic. I LOVE organic milk, and once I got used to organic 2% milk, I went and bought regular 2% milk and it tasted like milky water to me. Yuck. I can't always afford organic meat (feeding a family of 5 on a budget of $100-$125 a week), but I do make sure it is "natural" and says never given antibiotics or growth hormone. I think that's the most important thing. All these hormones and antibiotics are really affecting the bodies of our children.

  • Thing with organic at grocery stores is how do you know the vegetables are organic? Because there's a sticker on it? Someone could put the same 4644 tomato sticker on a regular tomato and an organic PLU on the same type of tomato.

  • Well anon that could be said about anything we buy, not just organic. I stay away from high fructose corn syrup as well. Here is a list of fruits and vegetables.
